The Largest Fortress in India,Chittorgarh Fort | #MacroTraveller

In the state of Rajasthan, in the north of India, one of the most impressive constructions of Indian culture is hidden. An architectural legacy that deserves a visit. It is the Chittorgarh Fort, the largest in the country that houses palaces, temples, and towers, protected by majestic walls that have centuries of history. Do you want to know a scenario as old as mysterious?

A Ruined Citadel!

Located in an area of 2.8 square kilometres, Chittorgarh Fort stands on a 180-meter-high hill. A majestic construction that gives visitors a panoramic view of luxury. But also, behind the walls of this superb construction, there are a large number of palaces, temples, and towers. A fort that has been uninhabited since the sixteenth century, but has not lost a single bit of beauty, mystery, and charm. 

Fortress is a perfect example of Rajput architecture. A traditional architectural style of the country, which arouses the curiosity and interest of hundreds of travellers from all corners of the world.

Beauty and History

And what architectural gems are hidden inside this fortress? Beauties as magical as Vijay Stambha or the Tower of Victory, which reaches 37 meters in height. A tower that was built in the 15th century to commemorate the victory of King Mewar Rana Kumbha. Although we should not forget the Tower of Fame and the Rana Kumbha Palace, which by the way is the oldest monument of the Fort.

Some buildings that were once the home of Indian emperors and that today are a magnificent architectural legacy. A fort surrounded by a circular wall and with seven huge entrances that give access to the historical beauty of the largest fort in the country.
